The malaria-free Lapalala Wilderness Reserve is a 3.5-hour drive or 45-minute charter flight from Johannesburg. The reserve is bordered by other private game sanctuaries and has a sheltered location, which offers ideal security for herds of black and white rhino, buffalo, sable, and roan antelope, which are all bred on the reserve. The reserve has a legacy of nature preservation, and the lodge focuses on remaining environmentally conscious. Lapalala Wilderness Reserve is known for its research and breeding programs of rare and endangered species.
